Saturday June 6
Tianjin days have sadly come to an end. I really like how this place became a home for the short time that we had here. The feeling was definitely due to the students at Nankai University who took the time to get to know us. Back home you rarely see people of our age group give up their time to help people they are just meeting. Everyone made me feel completely comfortable and welcome. I hope to have a chance to either come back here and see them or if any of them come to the United States provide them with the same courtesy that they were nice of enough to do for us. I am excited to see what the rest of the trip will be like in Shanghai. I really want to bring the concept “face” back home and work on building long term friendships instead of acquaintances.
